This month we’re happy to welcome Zumrad. She is from Tajikistan and in 8th grade and learning English in school as well as through The School Inside. Our regular readers already know and love the stories of her mother, Manizha.  Welcome, Zumrad!

ONCE there was a girl named Bell. One day when she was walking she saw a library. She went inside to find a book. There were so many books!  She did not know which one to take. Then she saw a big yellow book. The title was, “The cat in my garden”.  She read this book in three days. The next day, she looked out her window she saw a cat in her garden! So she gave this cat a home.  —Zumrad
